A great tour of a fantastic city
The Art Deco tour of Napier is a must do for anyone interested in Art Deco architecture. The city represents a brilliant collection of Art Deco buildings which in my opinion should really have World Heritage status.
The guide brought the sad story of how the city was restored to life.
Thankfully, it is a story of hope ,as Napier is now a thriving city with the Art Deco buildings at its core.
However it is essential that the trust keeps up the pressure to retain these buildings in their excellent condition so the World does not loose this magnificent heritage.
If you don’t do this tour when in Napier then you are missing a gem.

An educational and enjoyable tour of Napier.
Dec 2017 • Couples
We had an excellent time doing this tour. John was knowledgeable, personable and exuded so much enthusiasm and passion. If you have a limited time in Napier and want to have a comprehensive overview of the history of Napier, in addition to visiting the beautiful countryside and some of the wineries in the area, I would highly recommend anyone to do this tour. Enjoy your time in Napier!!
